Food Service
  • Assuming you are providing your own food, we would just need to know what is being served in order to ensure that it is properly executed. We also have a full catered option available. Contact us for details.
  • Coffee and tea and non alcoholic punch station set up (nominal fee for product - or option to provide your own).
  • Cupcakes or cake are optional and you can also supply your own.
  • One service attendant (for service assistance, bussing, set up and clean up.
  • Full set up / clean up (includes absolutely everything you need - linens, chairs, tables, cutlery, plates, glassware - Sounds silly to mention, but many other places charge for all these inclusions)

  • Bar Service (optional)
  • If you wish to serve alcohol to your guests, you also get the added bonus of providing your own product which offers significant cost savings, and flexibility. A Special Occasions Permit (S.O.P.) from the LCBO (cost $25) is required, but we’ll look after all the leg-work. You only need to sign-off as permit holder for your event.
  • We also provide a Smart Serve Designated bar tender which is a requirement under the S.O.P. policies.

  • Room Decor
  • Professionally decorated with a seasonal flavor. Includes full table decorations (tea lights, conventional centerpieces)
  • Floral decor available - very affordable and we should discuss!

  • Room Amenities
    • Use of surround sound stereo system - this is included with any package but we highlight this inclusion because our system negates the need for a dj. It was professional installed, custom to our venue. It is fully adaptable with any type of external music device. Our clients love this feature because it saves them $$ and they get to provide the music that they want.
    • Use of 42 inch plasma screen for slide show. All we need is an external device that contains pics and we can display a nice slide show for your guests. No set-up on your part - we only need the pics and my techy partner does the rest! I strongly recommend utilizing the slide show because it is free with all our bookings and it is always received so well with guests.
